Lovely to see another 'Lightweight,' though I would venture yours is 'younger' than mine as it has a screw reel seat rather than the all cork version.

The link to mine is :-

I'm no flyfisher, but it has been suggested to me that a 4 or 5 weight would be appropriate.

Welcome to "The Precision Owners Club." (I may have to have badges made !!! ;-) )
Have you used your Lightweight AC? I am tempted to use mine on the Derwent here in Matlock but wondered how it would handle fish of 2lb-3lb which are quite common I believe. I intend to use either a silk line or a 5 wf plastic line. I am just a bit nervous of over stressing the rod, I am assuming at 7 ft it is really a brook/stream rod? What do you think?
